If you’ve recently bought, or are planning to buy, a boat, recreational or snow vehicle from someone other than a Massachusetts dealer, you have a few obligations to keep in mind.

Once you’ve purchased your boat, recreational or snow vehicle, you’ll need to file Form ST-6, using the Online ST-6 Application

Before you file the Form ST-6, you’ll want to review the ST-6 Application Information page. This page will provide a list of helpful hints that’ll make filing the Form ST-6 easier.

The ST-6 Application also lets you pay your use tax, which you’re required to do by the 20th day of the month following the purchase, use, storage, or any other method of operating your boat, recreational or snow vehicle within Massachusetts.

The ST-6 Application information page will provide information about paying your use tax. There is also a Guide to Sales and Use Tax to help answer any questions you might have about paying use tax.
